Hi all! My name is Locked Box
(which you'll know if you read the headers) and I am a not-so-average girl from Australia. "Now see here!" you say, "what on earth gives you the right to say you're better than average?" well, I never said that did I? What I meant to say was that I have a neurological condition known as Asperger's Syndrome (pronounced ass-per-gers NOT ass-burgers) When I was diagnosed it was part of the Autism spectrum, but now scientist's and psychologist's alike seem to be up in arms trying to decide whether it should be there or not. I have a lot of trouble understanding how neurotypical people think and feel, so if you think I'm acting like a weirdo, rest assured. It's not me, it's you.
I'd love to meet fellow aspies, by the way, so please feel free to drop me a line :)
Neurological issues aside, I am a relative greenhorn to writing, drawing and art in general. I've been drawing ever since I could wield a crayon, but it's never been a serious thing before. Then the HSC happened and suddenly I'm in uni studying natural history illustration. It's like a long suffering adult got tired of sitting in the backseat, sandwiched between two kids moaning "are we there yet" over and over, gave a swift vulcan nerve pinch to the driver and took the wheel himself. I have a very very long way to go, but I'm enjoying every step of the way, so feel free to check out my stuff on deviantart
I also like to write. If you want to see my literature please mosey on over to my AFF account
or my AO3
account. If you do read my stuff then I would love to hear your opinions! If you like it, please tell me why. If you hate it, still tell me why! Or better yet: tell my why you hate it and how I can make it better, because I'll have no idea that I'm doing something wrong until somebody shows me the right way to do it. I also have a Y!gal
account, and you probably don't need to be told whats on there.
I've also made a works page for my writings here, so feel free to peruse them and add any appropriate tropes. So far my only work is Mix Beer With Liquor And You Will Get Sicker
. Happy reading.
